For the first time ever, mega pop up The Winter Village is coming to Perth’s Ice Cream Factory in Northbridge.

The Winter Village is an alpine-inspired winter wonderland that debuted in Melbourne in 2019. It will transform Ice Cream Factory into a 3300m2 winter wonderland, complete with an ice skating rink, an igloo village, daily snow showers and food & drink pop ups serving the ultimate cosy comfort food.

Entry to The Winter Village is free, walk in customers can order food & beverage directly from the pop up bars, with casual outdoor seating available. For those looking for a new experience, here’s a taste of what you can expect:

The Brunch & Skate Package

The Brunch & Skate Package will let the weekend warriors work up an appetite with a 45-minute skate session, followed by a well-earned brunch in a private igloo. Brunch & Skate packages will be available every Saturday and Sunday at 10am ($35 for adults $22 for kids).

Ice Skating Passes

Ice skating passes can be booked online, with 45-minute sessions available during opening hours. Passes are $26 for adults, $18 for children aged 6-14 and $10 for children aged 3-5.

Don’t miss out!

The Winter Village is brought to life by Australian Venue Co, who operate The Aviary, The Globe, Wolf Lane as well as The Guildford Hotel, Sweetwater and more – so you can be sure it’ll be a great event!

State Manager, Joe Baily, is excited to bring the Winter Village to Perth, in a year when many are looking for a new adventure without crossing state lines or going overseas.

“Most of us aren’t ready to make overseas travel plans, so we’re thrilled to be able to create an escape close to home for West Australian’s this winter. We aren’t holding back; we are going to bring the Winter Village with a bang!” he said.

“It’s perfect for a night out with friends, a fun day in the city with the family or for a unique corporate event with clients.”

The alpine-inspired winter wonderland will be open daily and will run for three months, from May 28 to September 5, 2021.
